Reaction of 2,3-Me2-2,3-C2B9H9 with [Fe(1,5-C8H12)(η-C5H5)] in benzene, toluene, o-xylene, or with an excess of naphthalene in light petroleum, affords the complexes [closo-1-(η6-arene)-2,4-Me 2-1,2,4-FeC2B9H9], the identity of the toluene complex being established by X-ray crystallography; reaction of the η6-naphthalene complex with the ligands L = CO or P(OMe) 3 affords [closo-1, 1, 1-L3-2,4-Me2-1,2,4- FeC2B9H9].
